It’s not about how hard you hit.

After accumulating a decent body of work I decided to create a website. The reason was to be able to showcase my work and also if there were like-minded people who wanted to collaborate, could access my expertise. I got a freelancer to take this responsibility of the infrastructure side of things i.e. hosting, maintenance, updates to WordPress, etc.

One fine day, I get to write a blog only to find the site has been suspended!

After two weeks of follow up the freelance expert tells me that this hosting service provider had pulled the plug. I was calm because I knew there would be some mitigating steps i.e. back up, which would have been in place. I am afraid there were none :(.

All the content, the design assets and the blog posts were lost in the ether. Times like these remind me of a quote from the 2006 movie Rock Balboa

“It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

– Rocky Balboa
